Free Rides for SF Teachers as They Head Back to Their Classrooms

March 15th, 2021

This April, SF teachers and staff are heading back into the classroom to begin teaching. The team at Scoot wants to say thank you—and to help. 

That’s why we’re again offering our Free Rides for Teachers program throughout the month of April. Now educators in San Francisco can experience a clean, traffic-free, and socially distanced way to get around, whether they’re commuting to class, picking up supplies, or on a lunchbreak.

“We’re all facing a ‘new normal’ this academic year, and at the center are the educators who’ve been given the enormous task of reimagining both online and in-classroom learning,” said Bob Walsh, Government Partnerships at Scoot. “We want to do our part to help by providing all teachers with free personal mobility so they can focus on what matters most: their passion for education.”

The program offers teachers up to two free 30-minute rides per day and is valid from April 1, 2021 through April 30, 2021. To sign up, simply email together@bird.co with your teacher ID or teaching credentials and we’ll get you enrolled asap.
